Tree Root Induced Settlement of a Large Industrial Building Founded on Expansive Clay–A Case History
Trees planted adjacent to buildings have been known to cause significant structural distress. In this paper, a case study is presented where a large tilt-up concrete industrial building...

Functional Analysis of the Exploratory Studies Facility
This paper discusses the development of the 'Physical System Requirements-Exploratory Studies Facility' (PSR-ESF) document. Based on a functional analysis approach, this document includes...

Using Forecasts to Improve Reservoir Operations
This review considers methodologies that have or can be employed to incorporate streamflow forecasts into reservoir policies and operating decisions. These include the use of streamflow...

A Frost Protection Design for Fruit Trees in Southwest Colorado
The project explores the feasibility of producing commercial quantities of fruit in the high and arid environment of Southwestern Colorado by using low-volume water delivery systems for...

Chaos Characteristics of Tree-Ring Series
Thirteen tree-ring series from the Salt and Verde River basins in Arizona are studied to distinguish between chaos and randomness. A chaotic moving average model that represents the time...

Use of Event Trees and Economic Models In Evaluating Hydroelectric Rehabilitation Projects

Nitrogen Leaching from Young Florida Citrus
Sixteen buried drainage lysimeters were constructed from 2300 L polyethylene containment basins for the study. The lysimeters were 2.1 m in diameter by 0.8 m deep and were filled with...

An Overview of Louisiana's 1991-92 Christmas Tree-Brush Fence Program
A project to alleviate coastal land loss in Louisiana through the construction of sediment-trap fencing using recycled Christmas trees is described. It has been demonstrated that Christmas...

Evaluation of Palmiter Erosion Remediation Techniques — A Case Study

Quantifying Uncertainty in Site Characterization
The uncertainties in determining the true geologic conditions at the proposed high-level nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain, Nevada needed to be determined as part of the Exploratory...

On-Off Terminal Ship-to-Rail Transfer
The intermodal situation of U.S. ports is still evolving, and port planners will be facing difficult decisions regarding IM Configurations. This article was intended to assist 'perplexed'...

Scenario Evolution: Interaction Between Event Tree Construction and Numerical Analyses
Construction of well-posed scenarios for the range of conditions possible at any proposed repository site is a critical first step to assessing total system performance. Event tree construction...

Heuristic Optimization of Water Distribution Systems
A design heuristic for the optimization of water distribution systems is presented. Algorithm TREESEARCH finds a near optimal core tree layout. Algorithm REDUNDANCY adds redundant links...

Drainage Lysimeters for High Water Table Citrus Studies
Forty drainage lysimeters were installed in 1988 to conduct water quality and consumptive use studies for citrus. The lysimeters were designed to simulate the high water table conditions...

Land Management and Water Yield in the Appalachians
Watershed treatments on the Fernow Experimental Forest have included individual tree selection, commercial clearcutting, clearcutting upper and lower halves of watersheds, clearcutting...

Effect of Saline Irrigation Water on Tree Growth
A random block experiment using three types of soil, five different qualities of irrigation water, and three popular windbreak trees was conducted to measure the effects of soil type and...

Bank Erosion During the 1988-Flood in the Rumoi River
Observations of the bank erosion were performed in the Rumoi River after the flood in August, 1988. It was found from the detailed research that the pattern of the flood was an important...

Utilization of Christmas Trees in Dune Restoration

Risk Assessment for the Multiple Threat from Dioxin Analysis
In this paper, the author focuses on the integrated method of estimating the risks and the evaluation of the risk acceptability based on a systematic classification of all risks involved...

Instream Flow Requirements for Riparian Vegetation
Increasing frequency of stream diversion is requiring establishment of methods to determine instream flow requirements for riparian resources. Most methods are oriented toward fisheries....
